Researchers are claiming several new benefits of wearable cameras in their latest findings because they believe that the cameras could provide health insights by maintaining good relationships between lifestyle behaviors of a person and their health outcomes.
The conclusions have been drawn through a collection of studies in a special theme issue of the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, in which, the experts have minutely detailed about all the three studies and their issued reports on the latest preventive medicine research with the help of Microsoft's wearable camera, i. e. the SenseCam.
"Wearable cameras and their associated software analysis tools have developed to the point that they now appear well suited to measure sedentary behavior, active travel, and nutrition-related behaviors," says author Mr. Aiden R. Doherty, PhD, from the Department of Public Health at the University of Oxford, United Kingdom.
He suggested adding that with the help of such devices, it becomes easier for the individuals to recall events more accurately because they can review the images from their wearable cameras, which implies that their immediate cognitive functioning can also see improvement.
The study detailing about the benefits of wearable cameras was performed by researchers in Ireland. Experts have thoroughly analyzed the benefits of wearable cameras in the dietary intake of jockeys, Gaelic footballers, and physically active college students.
